Don’t forget that tonight (Sunday) is game night.
I still need character descriptions, for use on the Roster page, from some of you.
In the last session, the party listened as Guri discussed the magic-dampening powers of the algae collected by the tower known as the Skimmer. She also mentioned three additional sites; the Orb of Purification, the Chamber of Dissolution, and the Deadwater Fountain. Together, the four chambers of mysterious machinations strain Oerthblood from the surrounding sea.
Once Dorman had summoned an ally from the sea, a blue shark, he noted that the creature appeared different than those of its kind. The glowing golden fishhook, symbol of the Fishermen, revealed that the shark was a dire specimen.
At 10:24, the Server Reboot logged out anyone using mibbit to reach the chat via irc.otherworlders.org
Retracing their path, the party returned to the ruins of the citadel, where they found the entrance guarded by a sea ogre. Unexpectedly, the triton Xmador was drawn back within the crimson conch shell. The merrow is armed with a club and spear. He is shackled to a chain which disappears beyond the mouth of the cavern. At the moment, he is distracted by his meal of dead sea sprites.
IRC Server List: Last Week the Network Server, irc.otherworlders.org, rebooted and caused those using mibbit to lose their connections. Here is a link to other servers which should also work, in a pinch.

Monterey Bay Aquarium: Kelp Forest Web Cam I still like watching this one, while the Outer Bay Cam is being refurbished. Keep an eye out for the leopard sharks and other beasties . The Garibaldi was the inspiration for my half-locathah of the same name.
Octopus in a Rice-Cooker: Video I am reminded of The octopus named Aurora
Methane Bubbles: Video Anyone remember the water dwarves that dwell in the deep chasm near the locathah village, mining explosive crystals they called “frozen thunder”?

Undersea Adventures: Comments, Concerns, & Concepts: I posted similar threads at EN World, RPG.net, wizards.com, Giants in the Playground, Penandpapergames, and Canonfire to gauge interest in undersea adventures and to mine for ideas. Some threads have 2-3 pages of replies, now.
GHWiki Gem of the Week: The Isle of Dread- “ The Isle of Dread was settled by Olman humans more than 1,300 years ago. They cleared the jungle, planted crops, and built a fortified city, known as Thanaclan, on top of a large central plateau. This city-state became one of the wealthiest provinces of the Olman Empire, in large part due to the recovery of treasure in the waters off the coast… Unfortunately, a kopru plot destroyed Thanaclan through the power of a giant black pearl imbued with the influence of Demogorgon, the demonic god of the kopru. The city was swallowed by a boiling lake and the island was overwhelmed with prehistoric creatures, while the remaining Olman descended into savagery. ”
